Custom Type:Statue / Bust

Date Added:September 21, 2013
Base Figure:none
Height:14.00 inches
From the alien world of Mer: Morpho!

Morpho was an alchemist who sought to control the most powerful being on Mer for his own ends. During one of his underwater research expeditions the Dark Dweller took him over and made him into his servant. Transforming and disfiguring him into a half-man, half-creature of both worlds; the human world and the realm of Dark Water. He can control Dark Water and serves as the Dark Dweller's physical extension into the above world. They communicate via a magical orb that Morpho wears around his neck, containing Dark Water.

Morpho was always one of my favorite guest characters, so I deceide to give it a go. I made the orb oversized to symbolize the Dark Dwellers hold over him, almost like a ball & chain that physically and mentally restraints him. The base represents Dark Water.

Sculpted from scratch, except the top of the orb which is a plastic and the necklace which is cloth. Painted with several brands of model paints and sealed with both matte and gloss sealent. For the first time ever I've added som WIP pictures. Thanks for looking!

By the way, making his skull orb pendant larger than life and lying it on the floor (like a ball and chain) next to this bust really does convey a sense of Morpho being tied down it...GENIUS move and another reason why I love this piece!
